I absolutely love a quirky wedding venue and there is none more quirky and just so flippin’ cool than Beaulieu Treehouse in The New Forest at the Countryside Education Centre. It is exactly as awesome as it sounds; a real woodland wedding treat, complete with a rope bridge to boot!
As a recommended supplier of the venue I’m very lucky to get to shoot there regularly, and so I’ve compiled some of my favourite photos to give you some real wedding inspiration below. As you can see, the treehouses are nestled on the edge of the woods, with a clearing out the front with a perfect space to hold a decent sized crowd for reception drinks and of course, confetti!
After the wedding ceremony, which can be in either of the treehouses, guests are free to wander the grounds and take in the peaceful views or tuck in to the tasty canapes and nibbles. You can choose to either stay around the treehouses, or move on down to the meadow, where you can have your reception out in the open or under a marquee. You could even hire some lawn games!
The woods make a beautiful setting for some romantic couple shots and are ideal for family group photos as it’s cool and shaded in the summer and offer protection on rainy days. Back up at the treehouses for dinner, you can opt for a yummy summer BBQ, or a 3 course sit down, whatever you fancy. And then for speeches, you could either keep your guests seated at their tables, or for something a bit different why not all walk en mass down to the fire pit! There you could sip hot cider, toast marshmallows and enjoy the warmth of the fire as you listen to the speeches.
Beaulieu Treehouses in Hampshire is such a special and unique venue. However if you think you’d like to book it for your wedding you’d better be quick as they only book 12 a year!
